    My girlfriend likes most beers that she's tried except for IPAs and most pilsners. Her favorites are hefeweizens, witbiers, and stouts.

    Her favorite beer: Bell's Winter White Ale. She seems to think it has more banana esters than any other beer that she's had.

    West coast IPAs/DIPAs, sours and Belgians. The only thing I don't have to share is stouts and porters.

    Troegs Dreamweaver is probably her all time favorite, but she is starting to get into limited amounts of sours. The other day she said "can we open a Gueuze tonight?" That is a very scary thought

    My wifey likes Sours, Espresso Yeti, & Orval. Used to be a huge hop head, not so much lately..
    but also gets w/ Sauvignon Blanc & Cocktails, so the beer stash isn't too depleted generally ;)

    My girl's faves are Zombie Dust and Dragon's Milk.

    She thought Blue Moon was awesome before I met her...then I offered her the red pill.

    My wife usually likes stouts and porters, though she will sometimes go for a wheat beer (Oberon, Gumballhead). But when asked she says her favorite beer is Pliney

    My wife has a slobbering love affair with citra hops, and owns half our brewery, so her favorite, pseudoSue, usually graces her lips and makes for some hoppy kisses ;).

    As the "hubs" in question, I would like to note that (a) not only am I currently drinking a Celebration, but (b) I've been in charge of a number of stout acquisitions over the past week including a Black Ops and BCBS Cherry Rye to name a few, not to mention a couple of sours along the way...

    My wife loves hops. Her favorite beer is probably Portsmouth Brewery's Bottle Rocket IPA, closely followed by Smuttynose Finest Kind IPA. Though, Nugget Nectar is a family favorite too.

    My wife just told me CCB Cafe Con Leche was "way too bitter like beer". I've been trying to convert her for a while, but this pretty much gave me no hope :-(

    Boon Kriek Lambic... on draught. So she doesn't get her favorite that often. She enjoyed Saisons and Tripels until she had a few of them both on an empty stomach... Now she pretty much sticks to sours and ciders.

    She has two: Duchesse de Bourgogne and Hopslam. Mighty fine choices, I would say.

    My gf prefers sour beers. Right now her favorite is Cuvee Des Jacobins Rouge. Thankfully we have a local bar that constantly has new sours beers on tap. She also has a few select IPA that she likes. Thank goodness she stopped drinking budlight!!!!!

    It was Blue Moon, but has expanded to include various wittes and hefeweizens. She also went on quite a pumpkin spree this fall and liked quite a few. She will try most any style, though.

    My wife is a sucker for IPA's, she has been on a Celebration Ale kick for the winter. We both look forward to the case of Heady our friends bring back often.
